Fantasy Bundesliga tips:
10 players to consider for Matchday 26
By Rune Gjerulff @runegjerulff
Here are 10 players you should consider bringing into your Fantasy Bundesliga team for Matchday 26.
Instead, we will highlight players with a maximum ownership percentage of 15%, who could offer great value as differentials for Matchday 26.
Frederik Rønnow, Union Berlin (Goalkeeper, 2.4M, 0%)
With Andreas Luthe out due to COVID-19, the Danish goalkeeper is set to earn a rare start against VfB Stuttgart. Rønnow's low price makes him an intriguing option for this weekend if you're looking to free up funds for other transfers.
Luca Netz, Gladbach (Defender, 4.1M, 1%)
Gladbach may be in poor form, but their opponent this week, Hertha BSC, are in even more trouble, having lost their last four games, conceding 15 goals in the process. Ramy Bensebaini is suspended, which means 18-year-old Luca Netz is likely to come in at left wing-back.
Nico Schulz, Dortmund (Defender, 4.6M, 3%)
Schulz is expected to deputize for Raphael Guerreiro, who is out due to COVID-19, and is a cheap way into Dortmund's defence.
Borna Sosa, Stuttgart (Defender, 11.2M, 8%)
The Croatian left-back was a constant threat in Stuttgart's 3-2 comeback win over Gladbach last week, picking up 13 points after an impressive performance. Stuttgart will take confidence from the result against Gladbach and have two good fixtures – Union Berlin (A) and Augsburg (H) – coming up before the international break and unlimited transfer period.
Chris Führich, Stuttgart (Midfielder, 5.9M, 0%)
Much like Sosa, Führich was key to Stuttgart's vital win over Gladbach last week. Pulling the strings in a more central role, the former Dortmund and Paderborn player got on the scoresheet and racked up 12 points.
Florian Neuhaus, Gladbach (Midfielder, 12.3M, 5%)
Neuhaus is likely to be given a more attacking role as Gladbach look to cope with the absence of Jonas Hofmann, who has sustained a muscle injury. The 24-year-old has had a hand in six goals (four goals, two assists) in the league this season already and should have a good chance of adding to that tally against Hertha.
Dani Olmo, RB Leipzig (Midfielder, 12.6M, 10%)
In recent weeks, RB Leipzig coach Domenico Tedesco has rotated his squad frequently to cope with the strain of playing in three competitions. As a result, Dani Olmo has started the last three league games on the bench. However, since Leipzig's Europa League clash with Spartak Moscow was cancelled, they only need to focus on the Bundesliga for the time being. Therefore, Olmo looks likely to start both games before the international break and unlimited transfer period.
Saša Kalajdžić, Stuttgart (Striker, 11.2M, 1%)
Having fought his way back from a long-term injury, Kalajdzic has taken 21 points from his last two games. With the tall forward showing signs of the form that saw him find the net 16 times last season, he could be a good player to pick up this week.
Donyell Malen, Dortmund (Striker, 14.1M, 3%)
Wirh Marco Reus ruled out and Erling Haaland only fit enough to come off the bench, the pressure will be on Donyell Malen to deliver at home against Arminia Bielefeld, who have several players unavailable due to COVID-19.
Alassane Pléa, Gladbach (Striker, 15.2M, 2%)
Although Gladbach fell to a disappointing defeat last week, Pléa still managed to pick up 11 points after scoring and providing an assist. With Gladbach now facing a Hertha side, who have conceded 13 goals in their last three games, the Frenchman has the potential to score really big this week.
